Running on a treadmill

Hi Everybody,

More often than not, I find myself running on a treadmill - probably because it is in front of a TV.I find that the workout is just as good and I can monitor both my pace and HBPM. It seems to also be softer on my knees and works great in the Winter.

What are your thoughts?

Road vs Treadmill

Hi Shaun

I find that I get more injuries running on a treadmill as you seem to keep hitting the same spot. 30-40min latter the body starts to hurt. My ankles took strain.

When I am on the road the road is always throwing something different at you. You don't get that repeaditive movement

This sounds quite strange coming from me. I always used the treadmill. But since I have hit the road I have never been back on the treadmill. I have even hit the road at 10pm at night because I got home late from work

It depends. I live in an area where the wind can hit 20-40 miles an hour on a regular basis. Since I live in the high desert 20-40 mile an hour winds mean a lot of dust and dirt blowing around. Winters can also be quite inclement. So I also find myself on a treadmill regularly. I don't notice a difference in aches or pains. However, I do find the treadmill to be not as mentally engaging as when I am outside.
